Interesting post on decisions millennials make today in reference to the grad school admissions process.
Check it out and let’s spark the conversation!
There’s mad hype around getting multiple degrees to complement or supplement a JD or MBA. It’s tempting: Why not apply to all the programs your heart desires? Pile ‘em on! What is there to lose?! Well, actually, a lot.
As someone who’s in the middle of a joint degree program, I can attest to the challenges: money, time, logistics of moving and relocating between programs, scheduling conflict, loss of leadership opportunities. Adding a degree will do nothing for you if you don’t have: (1) a clear vision for its use, (2) degrees that can operationalize into a job/networks/region that the other degree cannot, and (3) a clear understanding of which of the two is the core degree (more on what that means in a second).

Check out this awesome post on why we should all “Embrace our Inner Millennial“ by one of my co-workers on LinkedIn. Sneak Preview Posted Below:

Think about it – we all use technology to stay connected, pay bills, go on vacation and watch TV shows. We all Google every “how to” question before we read a manual. Our attention spans have shortened – no one watches commercials on TV. We demand everything to be quick, easy, and online. Are you texting yet? Yes, you are. Are you staying connected to family, friends, co-workers, and school mates on social media? Yes! How do you share photos? I bet it’s not in a photo album. How do you listen to music – on a CD player?
Do you find yourself asking “why” a whole lot more? It’s because you have changed. Stuff has to make practical sense and it has to be easy or you’re not doing it. Are you sending movie tickets and boarding passes to your i-devices? Yes! And how many i-devices are in your charging in your home every night? Are you Tweeting and Yelping at the sign of any dissatisfaction? Uh-huh. You are a Millennial!
